A fine quality mid 18th century Chippendale period carved giltwood rectangular mirror in the manner of Thomas Johnson, retaining the original mirror plate. The pierced cartouche having a ho-ho bird above, the sides consisting of C-scrolls, flower heads and foliate branches and the apron centred by two sheep.
Note: The lightness of the design and the quality of the carving relate to a drawing by Johnson, published in 1758.
Literature: Helena Hayward, Thomas Johnson and English Rococo, London, 1964, plate 1.
